Product Information

The SPL-120 subwoofer is a step up from the Klipsch Reference series. Featuring a high-efficiency Class-D amplifier and spun copper Cerametallic woofer, the SPL series subwoofers deliver best-in-class low frequency output.

Features

  • 12" spun copper Cerametallic woofers
  • Bass reflex via exclusive front-firing internal-flare port
  • Class D amplifier with 300W RMS/600W peak
  • Premium scratch-resistant finish
  • Strong, flexible, removable magnetic grille
  • Dimensions: 17.75" x 14.7" x 19.9"

Spun Copper Front-Firing Cerametallic Woofers

Cerametallic woofers are exceptionally light and extremely rigid, providing remarkable, low frequency response with minimal cone breakup and distortion for higher, cleaner output using less amplifier power.

High Efficiency Class D Amplifier

The built-in, high efficiency amplifier features an analog preamp design, which maintains the original signal path for cleaner, true-to-source reproduction. The Class D output stage ensures maximum efficiency for maximum output, detail, and low frequency power.

Front-Firing Slot Port with Exclusive (Internal Flare Technology)

Proprietary internal geometry that minimizes port noise for clean, undistorted, low frequencies. The front-firing design allows for placement flexibility.

WA-2 Wireless Subwoofer Kit Capable

The Klipsch WA-2 Wireless Subwoofer Kit (sold separately) allows high resolution wireless connectivity for easy placement anywhere in your room, and optimizes output and low frequency response. Connect up to four WA-2 wireless kits to compatible Klipsch subwoofers in a single room for a completely wireless connection.

Flexible Controls

Low Pass Crossover and Variable Phase control allows you to tune the subwoofer to your Klipsch speakers and to your room, establishing the ideal level of bass. Line Level/LFE RCA inputs ensure compatibility with home theater receivers.

Use Inputs Simultaneously

Both the RCA and wireless inputs can be utilized, giving you the ability to use a single subwoofer with multiple systems in the same room. For example, you can use the wireless input for your home theater setup and the RCA input for your 2-channel system, without needing to switch inputs when changing between systems.

1/2-Watt Standby Mode

Exceptional efficiency on or off. Meets global efficiency standards - reducing energy costs for the user.

Ultra-Durable Ebony Finish

Scratch-resistant ebony finish looks like real wood and covers the entire cabinet.

Detailed Design

Shock-absorbing rubber feet, steel grille posts, and a woven cloth grille give the SPL subwoofers a premium look and feel.

Outstanding Sub
I recently upgraded to the SPL-120 and was a little tentative that it was not going to provide enough bass for my home theater. Turns out there was nothing to worry about. I’ve tried it with movies and a variety of music and it provides tight, accurate bass that fills the room (and shakes the walls and the floors when needed. Love it!

I have a 12 x 24 dedicated TV room and this Sub rocks the room. Movies, games, and music are what it is used for. No problems and I would buy again!

Ultimate upgrade
Wow is all I can say. This is such a step up from the R120SW. It creates such clear, deep and room rumbling deep ends and bass. Best part of the upgrade to RP series in my opinion! I have been using Klipsch for 3 years now and decided to upgrade from the reference series to the full Reference premiere series. These speakers and absolutely fantastic. The build quality and sound detail is out of this world. Absolutely fell in love with Klipsch. Worthy upgrade and such a step up. Would definitely recommend it. I can’t say in words what a difference this sub adds to the system.

Modern regulated bass- love it
I am pairing a SPL120 with a set of vintage Forte IIs. The 120 has deep, tightly regulated response and plays at truly stellar volumes without and distortion or chuffing. I haven't been able to trip it up yet. At low volumes the bass is textured and musical as well. I has a bulletproof feel that my old sub didn't. Good job Klipsch.

Great sub, good bang for the buck
Has a lot of punch, bought it in conjunction with the fives. Had both the Fives and the Spl-120 outside on the 4th while cooking on the grill. Felt like i was at a concert hall. Listening distance was about 15ft or so away.

Subwoofer stopped working - No Sound
I bought this SPL-120 subwoofer through a dealer couple years and now it stopped working. I am seeing the small green power light on but there is no sound from this subwoofer. Don't know what happened and what has changed automatically with this subwoofer, it stopped working all of a sudden. I had sent two emails to Klipsch support requesting the options to fix, troubleshoot and/or repair this product. I am not sure if they really see my emails and reply back to my inquiry, if they do not contact then I have no choice to dispose this subwoofer and look for another one. I have purchased Klipsch reference premiere speakers with a package and this one costed with discounts and package offer at that time around $599 each.

I love Klipsch. I have a R-112SW I purchased about a month ago. This speaker is the exact same specs but is considered an "upgrade." Either way, it was cheaper than the model it is replacing and everything about it except for the finish is the exact same. I could use a more durable finish I could, works for me.

I have an SPL-120 with the wireless kit and I really love it. Can more than one SPL-120 be hooked to the same wireless kit?

  Thank you for your question. The receiving module of the WA2 attaches to the sub and is plugged into the amp module. Multiple woofers cannot be controlled with one WA2. A maximum of 4 WA2s may be used in your home to control 4 subwoofers
